    I love this pattern but on rows 3 and 4 the rows do not add up to 40 stitches. Could you help me out with this? Thank you very much for sharing this lovely pattern. Joyce

    • Absolutely–thank you so much for bringing it to my attention! Here’s how those two rows should read:

      Row 3: k1, (p3, k4) 5 times, p3, k1.

      Row 4: p1, (k3, p4) 5 times, k3, p1.

      Please let me know if you find any other errors and enjoy!

    Hi! Thanks so much for sharing your pattern. I haven’t knitted in a very long time. It was nice to get back to knitting & be able to make something so cute in a short amount of time. It was a perfect gift sent it to a friend whose birthday is near Valentine’s Day.
